The Kingston Speaks Inclusion (KSI) team at Kingston Community Health Centres (KCHC) is wrapping up its community consultations at the end of May, and is still seeking participants!

A unique partnership between the Kingston Police and KCHC, the goal of these Community Consultations is to hear feedback on how Kingston Police can increase equity, diversity, inclusion, indigenization, and accessibility (EDIIA) throughout their organization, according to a release from KCHC. According to the KSI website, the project is partially funded by the Kingston Police, but the partnership is arms-length: the Kingston Police will not be involved in the collection of data or the consultation process.

The KSI team would like to hear from as many community members as possible, and can collect feedback and stories via the online survey or through focus groups and interviews in and around the Kingston community.

According to the release, the goal of the project is to reach at least 500 participants, and to hear people’s stories and input as to how Kingston Police can improve their approach to EDIIA within their organization and in their relationships with the community. KSI will be analyzing and compiling data in June, culminating in a final report and recommendations to be presented to the Kingston Police based on themes and data collected through the consultation process.

Earlier this year KSI launched this survey, noting that the team has been committed from day one to ensuring that the report which comes from the responses to the survey is not the end of this process. KSI said that they will ensure that they have ongoing representation on the Kingston Police Community Inclusion Council, which will be created and shaped based on the recommendations of the final KSI report.
